2018 Victorian Architecture Awards

Roundup

It is becoming a bit of an addiction for us to peruse the entrants of Australian interior design and architecture awards. Today we have really hit the jackpot of online voyeurism, with the 2018 Victorian Architecture Awards entrants.

The Architecture Awards is particularly prestigious, as it is the only awards program run by the Australian Institute of Architects. It’s also judged by industry experts and peers, 
via a rigorous system that includes site visits to each project.

The National Architecture Awards, awarded by the Australian Institute of Architects, are one of the most respected awards in Australian building design. The Victorian chapter of these awards well and truly lives up to this pedigree – across 14 categories, the Victorian entries provide sound material evidence of the architectural genius in our home state!  

Great architecture doesn’t just look good – it adds value to the lives of the people who interact with it. It improves neighbourhoods, expands the public realm and can change our experience of entire towns and cities. The properties shortlisted in these awards really demonstrate this! Each project is a fine example of how great architecture can enhance our lives, and elicit an emotional response, as well as serving a practical function.

Before the awards are announced by Victorian Chapter President, Amy Muir, on Friday, June 29th, take the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with some of the entered projects. Here we have selected some of our highlights, including both public spaces, like the Bendigo Hospital by Silver Thomas Hanley with Bates Smart, and private residences such as Rob Mills Architecture and Interiors’ magnificent Armadale Residence.

If you are eager to dive deep on the best of Victoria’s architecture, suss the shortlist here, or explore via the new Google Earth platform that the Institute has developed, for a satellite overview of the whole back-catalogue of the award’s history.
